Bad news Arsenal fans, even your best striker doubts you can win the league

Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor has today admitted he can't see Arsenal winning the Premier League this season if they perform like they did against Tottenham on Wednesday. The Gunners conceded two very late goals against their North London rivals Spurs to draw the game 4-4 leaving everyone at the club feeling sick as parrots.

The 24-year old said : "To be champions in this way? You can never be a champion ... There is a lot of disappointment. We are down at the moment because we did everything to get the three points and we ended up with one ... We feel very sorry for ourselves that the things are not going the right way ... It was one of the most difficult games in my life because I cannot understand that after 90 minutes we were leading 4-2 - I don't know how we finished with a draw.

Arsenal also threw away silly points against lesser opposition earlier in the season, most notably the shock 2-1 home defeat by Premier League new boys Hull City. The Gunners now travel to Stoke City on Saturday where a defeat would almost certainly put to bed their chances of winning the title this season.

Personally I am a little bit surprised to see Adebayor come out with these statements. Following such a shock result, a player should be coming out and saying that the side can recover from such a result or not to worry we can still challenge for the league. But hey, at least he is saying what he really feels and I like that in a footballer, however I don't know whether or not these comments will have a positive or negative effect on the players come Saturday.
